Summary: Don't define _XOPEN_SOURCE on OpenBSD

Initial Comment:
Defining _XOPEN_SOURCE on OpenBSD breaks many 
things. For example, it makes the select and time 
modules unavailable (*oops*).

I think this is probably a bug in OpenBSD (I have 
bugreported it there) but in the absence of the ability to 
fix the bug in every OpenBSD installation in the world it 
would be nice if Python would detect OpenBSD and not 
define _XOPEN_SOURCE.

You need to provide more details. For the moment, I see *no
way* to withdraw the definition of _XOPEN_SOURCE, not even
for OpenBSD.

Please make separate bug reports for each issue, perhaps
starting with the select module. Why is it unavailable?
select *is* a feature of POSIX, after all (as is poll).
